SmartCons, or Smart Conservatives, describe the once-Liberal young voters who made the thoughtful decision to support Conservatives. Their primary concerns are the no-growth economy and the exploding national debt. Here is the SmartCon Platform.
Be Smart and Come on Over.
Millennials have every reason to join the Conservative struggle, from the mountain of debt being heaped upon them to the lack of job opportunities in this no-growth economy. Even though polls show that many millennials hold Conservative views, they just can’t bring themselves to take the big leap.
Many think Conservatives are religious zealots or Rush Limbaugh zombies, that Conservatives are stupid and can’t think for themselves. But the opposite is true.
So just who are the unthinking zombies?
Democrats are more like zombies. They walk in lockstep, with no open debate, just blind faith in (or fear of) a very political administration. Their minds are so closed that they don’t even listen to Conservative voices, especially on college campuses. On the issues of the day, the same centrally-distributed “talking points” are repeated by anyone who can get in front of a microphone.
On the Right, there is open discussion about party policy and the size and scope of government — there is actually a fight over the soul of the GOP itself between the establishment Republicans and the so-called Tea Party activists. There is more free thinking and discussion on the Right.
We Had to Think to Get Here.
It was cool to support the first Black president, and we knew it was racist to be a Republican, until we really thought about it.
We all had a moment of revelation that brought us to the Conservative side, like when we saw respected Black Conservatives, and when we could not find a good job right out of school, the chatter about over-regulation slowing business growth started to make sense.
Those insightful moments are the guts of www.considerconservatism.com, where all observations are based on true news stories and real life experiences.
It was not easy. To cross over to the Conservative side, we had to question things we had long believed, but it all became clear when we looked past the accusations and labels made by the Left, and looked directly at the underlying facts, especially with things like Conservatives being racists.
Are you Smart enough to distinguish conclusions from the underlying facts?
You’ve got to be smart to focus on facts and realities instead of emotions. It might strain your brain, but you got to keep your eye on the prize — better jobs now and less debt burden later.

Since most everything on the web, and taught in the universities has some element of bias, we ask you to consult the person you most trust, yourself. We utilize reality checks to elicit your own experiences, observations and opinions. If you isolate what you personally know and feel from what you have been told, you might find common ground with the SmartCons.
